A platelet-rich plasma facial is an innovative treatment that uses components of your own blood to stimulate the natural healing processes of your skin. PRP is an element of blood that contains growth factors. When injected into the skin, PRP acts as a type of matrix to support the underlying structure and stimulate collagen production, resulting in smoother, firmer, younger-looking skin.
Drawing your blood is the first step in a PRP facial. We place the blood into a centrifuge, which separates the platelets from the plasma. Once the concentrated source of platelets is ready, we use a microneedle to infuse the platelets into your skin.
Microneedling involves creating micro-injuries in the skin using a special pen device. The tiny channels allow for deeper penetration of the PRP while triggering new collagen production and cell regeneration.
We use topical numbing cream to make sure you're comfortable throughout your session. Adding platelet-rich plasma to microneedling also amplifies the effects of both treatments, providing superior results.

It takes a few weeks for the PRP to get to work stimulating healthier-looking skin. Most patients notice results within three weeks of the first session. The majority of our patients achieve excellent results following a series of two or three PRP facials scheduled about four to six weeks apart.
Results are long-lasting, and you’ll continue to see benefits and enjoy your results long after your session. Some patients see a refreshed appearance that lasts up to 18 to 24 months following the treatment. If skin concerns reappear, a touch-up session can keep them at bay even longer.
